I booked our tour well in advance and, as the day approached the weather looked overcast and I considered cancelling our trip. I am so glad I did not. It was one of the best experiences of our 10 day trip in Canada. My husband and I did a tandem tour with Angelo who hit the right balance of guide and information while still lagging behind at times to give us time on the river alone. We saw many bald eagles and other birds. The winds were calm the day we kayaked and during our 3 hour tour we easily made it to the waterfall where we ate delicious banana bread and drank tea. (My husband claims it was the best baked good we had on our trip, I thought second best.) Angelo is a Cape Breton native whose house you can see from the river. He also played some fun harmonica music for us! Be advised, this is in North River, although the mailing address is Baddeck. I would recommend the half day tour to anyone. (Note to reader: We actually traveled August 2011 but I was slow to write a review.)
